Copy settings between materials


Recommended Posts

Posted · Copy settings between materials

I have been using Cura for some time now, and have been using a custom profile based on the PLA Standard Quality stock profile,  which I have tweaked significantly to work with eSUN PLA+, which is my preferred material. I see the latest version of Cura has a preset for eSUN PLA+, but my profile is not supported based on the change of material type (Which I understand, as PLA ≠ PLA+ in the sense that PETG ≠ ABS). I would however like to use the eSUN PLA+ material preset with my customized profile.


Is there a way to copy profile settings from one material type to another?


I have also tried exporting my profile, but looking in the profile exported file, it is shows references to the base standard profile. Is there a way to export the profile settings independent of the base profile?
